Dan Komoda/Institute for Advanced Study

I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto and a Canada CIFAR Chair in AI at the Vector Institute. I work on the methodology of machine learning, with an emphasis on algorithms that work at scale in deep learning applications. I am particularly interested in methods for Bayesian inference and optimization. So far I have worked on gradient estimation, variational inference, Monte Carlo methods, and first-order methods for optimization. Here is a short bio in the third-person.


Curiosity and my sense of beauty are some of the reasons that I study machine learning. If you are interested in this or some other scattered thoughts, here are some interviews.
